Technical information about this website’s accessibility

Leeds Film, Leeds City Council is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.

Compliance Status

This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-compliances listed below:

Non-accessible content

The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.

Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations

 

Focus elements must be visible
Some elements that are focusable are not clearly visible due to the low contrast ratio for buttons and links. This fails the WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.4.7 Focus visible. We will work with our website developer to address this issue and amend the colour scheme on the website appropriately.

Elements must have sufficient colour contrast
Some elements do not have sufficient colour contrast. This fails the WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.4.3 Contrast (Minimum). We will work with our website developer to address this issue and amend the colour scheme on the website appropriately.

Skip repeated blocks
There’s no way to skip the repeated content in the page header (for example, a ‘skip to main content’ option). This fails the WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.4.1 Bypass Blocks.

Duplicate active ID
The active ID attribute is duplicated on some pages. This fails the WCAG 2.1 success criterion 4.1.1 Parsing.

Aria attributes must be valid
There are several issues with ARIA attributes including ARIA input fields without accessible names and ARIA attributes being used in roles where they are not allowed. This fails the WCAG 2.1 success criterion 4.1.2 Name, Role, Value.

Keyboard accessible
Some of our interactive forms are difficult or impossible to navigate using a keyboard. For example, because some form controls are missing a ‘label’ tag and the online booking process which is built and hosted through third party software and ‘skinned’ to look like our website. This fails the WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.1.1 Keyboard. We are currently out to tender for a new booking system which will be 2.1 compliant. We expect this to be in place by March 2021.

Form elements must have labels
Some form elements do not have labels making it difficult to navigate with a screen reader. This fails the WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.3.1 Info and Relationships and 3.3.2 Labels or Instructions.

Frames must have a title attribute
The booking system we use in the site does not have a title attribute for the frame it sits within. This fails the WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.4.1 Bypass Blocks and 4.1.2 Name, Role, Value.

PDFs
We are aware that a number of our PDFs are not accessible. If you require a PDF in a different format please email leeds.film@leeds.gov.uk with the URL of the PDF and what format you would like the PDF in.

Leeds Film is working towards full compliance and aims to resolve all the areas of non-compliance by April 2021.

Disproportionate burden

Not applicable.
